The South Seneca Lady Falcons continued their march towards back-to-back state titles with a decisive 73-34 victory over the Section VI Class C champion Frewsburg Bears at Buffalo State College on Saturday evening.
Coach Heather Mott’s Falcons exploded out of the gate outscoring Frewsburg 18-4 in the opening quarter and extending their lead to 34-12 at the halftime break. They continued their dominance in the 3rd quarter outscoring the Bears 22-12 and eventually recording a 39 point victory and securing a return visit to Hudson Valley Community College next weekend for the NYSPHSAA Class C Final Four.
Emily Larvanway led a balanced effort from South Seneca with 14 points, 10 rebounds and 3 blocks. Bailey Mingus finished with 12 points, a game-high 11 rebounds, 4 steals and 3 blocks. Kelsey Shaulis scored 11 points and dished out 5 assists while sister Skylar scored 8 points, pulled down 8 rebounds and carded 4 assists. Mackenzie Kenyon added 10 points, 6 assists and 4 rebounds. In all, 10 Lady Falcons scored in the dominating victory.
South Seneca will play next in the NYSPHSAA Class C Semifinals against Port Jefferson on Saturday afternoon (3/18) at 2:15 pm at Hudson Valley Community College. If they win, they would advance to the state title game against the winner of Mekeel Christian Academy and Watkins Glen on Sunday 3/19 at 11:45 am. The potential match-up with Watkins Glen is an intriguing one as the two communities are located within just a few miles on each other near the south end of Seneca Lake.
